Tetrad Buying Guide

Synonymous with classic British style, Tetrad sofas, armchairs and footstools bring together quality craftsmanship and upholstery excellence.

This bespoke sofa brand is widely regarded as one the finest in the UK for their Harris Tweed and leather upholstery. But Tetrad also offer a range of bolder, more contemporary sofas and chairs in their FF collection, upholstered in vibrant velvets and soft linens.

Find out more about the collections below in our simple Tetrad Buying Guide, as well as how to look after your furniture, FAQs and everything you need to know before you buy – from fillings and finishes to suspension and scatter cushions.

SUSPENSION & SCATTERS

FULLY COIL

The coil sprung seat is a traditional sofa suspension method. It involves the use of cone-shaped springs placed vertically across the base. This creates a supportive sit whilst retaining that luxurious sinking-in feeling. Featured on models such as the Norton Sofa, Nairn Chair and Taransay Sofa.

POCKET SPRUNG

This suspension method is often used for mattresses, but it is ideal for sofas and chairs too. Each spring is encased in an individual fabric pocket, ensuring that weight is distributed evenly. This means that whether you are sat at the centre of the sofa or at the seat edge, the level of comfort will always remain the same. Featured on models such as the Arran Sofa, Ellington Chair and Calvay Chair.

SERPENTINE & SUPER LOOP

Providing one of the firmest levels of comfort, these are flat, S-shaped, zig-zag springs. They are placed in a continuous pattern along the seat, back or arms to provide rigid structure and support. Featured on models such as the Duffel Sofa, Glencoe Sofa and Quaffer Chair.

WEBBED

Webbing involves elasticated straps being placed in a woven, criss-cross pattern along the sofa back, arms or base. This provides springy, resilient support. It is often used for slimmer sofa and chair designs that don’t have enough space for springs. Featured on models such as the Mackenzie Chair, Bradley Chair and Cabriole Chair.


WHAT IS A FEATHER-WRAPPED SEAT CUSHION?

Some Tetrad models – such as the Constable, Lowry and Battersea – have feather-filled comfort wrap seat cushions. These consist of a foam core wrapped in a duvet of soft feather. They are designed for comfort and firmness, holding their shape over time.

As standard, Tetrad scatter cushions are filled with feather. Unless stated as included, scatter cushions will always be chargeable extras – refer to the description of your desired sofa or chair model for more information. Alternatively, get in touch with our Tetrad specialists here.


All Tetrad scatter cushions are luxuriously filled with feather. Unless stated as included, scatters will always be chargeable extras. For more information, please contact our Tetrad specialists on 01386 711512 or email: sales@pavilionbroadway.co.uk
